“This unique structure was built with the intention of immersing all who enter in the boundless beauty of the natural world,” they said.
“The five and a half ton steel and wood geodesic pinecone shaped behemoth comes complete with a skilfully hand-crafted indoor/outdoor off-grid bathroom connected to the treehouse via wooden catwalk.
“Floating high in the branches of the magical Red Wood forests of Bonny Doon the Pinecone Treehouse will immerse you in 360 degree views of the forest’s upper canopy. Allow the healing power of this forest environment and this awe inspiring structure to sing you into complete relaxation, imagination and reflection.
“The treehouse sits 35′ above ground on the uphill side and almost 60′ from the ground on the downhill side. With two triangle shaped see through floor panels this treehouse makes one feel as though they are flying through the upper Redwood canopy.
“Entry and exit from the treehouse requires a bit of effort to ascend and descend the steep alternating step entry ladder as well as to pass through the trap door, if you’re not of sure-step we recommend using the harness safety system.”
The treehouse was constructed by master treehouse-builder Dustin Feider, who has been building for years and loves exploring the possibilities of treehouse architecture, especially when incorporating ornate geometry into the design.
Fixed to the trees from eight different points, the treehouse is completely secure and has very little movement. It’s primarily constructed from a bolted steel frame, which is complimented by acrylic window panels, each uniquely shaped and cut to form the appearance of a pinecone.
